Shipping a Car
in an Enclosed Trailer

Vehicle shipping can take many forms but fall into two basic categories: open transport and enclosed transport. In comparison to open transportation, closed shipping is most suited for transporting a small number of vehicles. It’s particularly suited for personal collections, including vintage cars, sports cars, and specialty cars, but that doesn’t mean you have to rule it out if you’re just looking to transport a family vehicle.

Advantages of Enclosed
Trailer Transport

If you’re not comfortable driving long distances, shipping a car through an auto transportation company has many advantages. Logistics professionals at Auto Transport can determine the best transport method, route, and can even provide door-to-door shipping so that there is no mileage increase for your vehicle. Enclosed trailer transport specifically has a number of advantages that should be considered: 

Protection from the Elements.

One of the most beneficial aspects of transporting a car using enclosed trailers is that it protects your vehicle from the dust and debris often linked to road travel. Traveling for long hours on a highway naturally accumulates dust and debris on your windshield, for example, and exposing your car to extreme weather elements can also have adverse effects on your paintwork.

If you need to travel hundreds of miles upstate, to other states, or even move to Mexico or Canada, auto transport companies can help you to avoid the potential wear and tear that driving long distances can have on your vehicle. Particularly useful if the journey may involve weather that you’re uncomfortable driving in, like heavy snowfall or high winds.

Protection From Theft

Naturally, since enclosed shipping hides your vehicle from prying eyes, it also protects your vehicle from potential theft. If you have a classic car, race car, or another specialty vehicle that requires transportation across the U.S., or directly to Maine it makes sense to do everything that you can to protect your most valuable assets, including utilizing closed shipping. It doesn’t have to be used just for expensive cargo; however, some vehicles have more sentimental value. Even if it’s just a family car you need to transport, Auto Transport can provide a car shipping quote.

Quicker than
Multi-level Carriers

Enclosed transport typically ships vehicles on a much smaller scale, securing one or two cars safely in an enclosed trailer. This type of shipping can be quicker than utilizing a multi-level carrier as multi-level carriers may be required to make multiple vehicle drop-offs en route to your car’s final destination. There is also the possibility of expedited shipping using enclosed transport. Get a car transport estimate today to see just how much quicker Auto Transport can deliver your vehicle.

Cost Effective

When you ship a car using enclosed trailer transport, it’s much more cost-effective than driving your vehicle long-distance. You won’t have to worry about gas prices, additional mileage, route planning, or the wear and tear a journey will have on your vehicle.
